I'm not sure whether to put Carl down as Inspirationally Disadvantaged or not. The show is usually pretty good about avoiding this, but an upcoming episode seems to be setting up Carl's attention to detail and photographic memory to save the day, which would qualify him for type B of the trope. What ultimately comes of it depends upon how the events of the episode itself play out. Maybe Carl is just sitting on the couch while the others are fussing over something. It's happened before. Please keep an eye on this.
